Scribus doesn't import from other design programs. But you can
try two paths: Save the file as .eps, split it into single pages
import them into a scribus document of the right dimensions and
page count one page at a time.

Or you can convert the Coral doc to pdf, view that in Acroread,
and save the document as text, import that into a Scribus doc
with sufficient pages and linked frames. That is what I would do.
